More iPhone Coding

Posted 2010.10.05 21.50 in iPhone by Stephanie

I’ve been spending just about every spare minute over the past 10 days working on an update to my second iPhone app, the Liber Umbrarum et Lux (Book of Shadows and Light.)

As I mentioned earlier, this is a much more involved update than what I did with PassGenR.

There’s probably another week yet of work to be done before I am ready to submit it to the App Store for approval, but until then, here’s a quick look at some of the enhancements. I’m not telling what the big new feature is, that’s a surprise for later.

  • Updated to iOS 4.x compatibility.
  • Still supports iOS 3.x devices, for backwards compatibility.
  • Graphics enhanced for Retina display compatibility.
  • New Icons & iTunes Artwork.
  • More images.
  • More content!

There’s a few other minor enhancements / improvements, and one really big new feature that I’m really excited about. It’s been a slow process though – literally having to re-learn how the app worked to begin with, then building from there to incorporate both technological improvements and content enhancements.

Plus, I get really picky and perfectionist at times. Just the icons and artwork alone took me 2 days and 5 complete redos before I had something I was fully satisfied with. (You can see the rendered iPhone 4 icon at the top of this post.)

PassGenR Update Available

Apple has finished reviewing the update for PassGenR and has approved it.

The updated app is now available for download at the App Store.

I have started working on an update for my second app, Liber Umbrarum et Lux. This one will take longer than a week or so however, as I have lots of big plans for version 2.0 of this app.
